Drywood Termites are wood Derstroying insects that feed on the cellulose wood members of a home. Normally, they will attack the wood framing inside the walls, attic or sub space within the home. A homeowner may identify them by the small fecal pellets that can fall from the ceiling or out of the walls of a home. A full termite inspection can also identify an active infestation or if there are conditons that can be conducive to a potential issue.
Once drywood termites have been identified the best course of action is to complete afull house fumigation to endsure effective coverage. When this is not an option a localized treatment by trained technicians can be performed on the affected wood member.
Identification and prevention are critical when dealing with drywood termites or any other wood destroying organism. Home owners in the San Francisco Bay Area are encouraged to perform a termite inspection every 3 to 5 years by a licensed termite professional.
